Today is November 5 and these are the stories I am following. Join me today at TeamDML.com at 10:30am when I will discuss these things and more.
According to the AP, gubernatorial and legislative elections in four states Tuesday will test voter enthusiasm and party organization amid impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump and a fevered Democratic presidential primary scramble. Results in Kentucky, Mississippi, New Jersey and Virginia won’t necessarily predict whether Trump will be reelected or which party will control Congress after the general election next fall. But partisans of all stripes invariably will use these odd-year elections for clues about how voters are reacting to the impeachment saga and whether the president is losing ground among suburban voters who rewarded Democrats in the 2018 midterms and will prove critical again next November.
DML: Trump will be watching this stuff VERY closely. Monitor his tweets tonight to gage his temp.
According to Fox News, at least nine people—including six children—who lived in a religious community of U.S. citizens in northern Mexico were killed Monday in what could be a case of mistaken identity after drug trafficking rivals got into a shootout with cartel gunmen.
DML: Mexico is NOT a “great neighbor” like DC idiots want you to believe. Don’t GO TO MEXICO, it’s just as bad as the Middle East.
3. Poll on impeachment
About six out of every ten U.S. adults, or 59 percent, believe President Donald Trump’s interactions with Ukraine that triggered the impeachment probe amount to something “unethical but not illegal” or “nothing wrong” at all, according to a recent poll. The poll, conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs and released on Friday, reveals that 29 percent believe Trump’s interactions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky are “unethical but not illegal.”
DML: So in other words, the impeachment is a turn off to most people.
4-Iran’s president announces another break from nuclear deal
Iran’s president announced on Tuesday that Tehran will begin injecting uranium gas into 1,044 centrifuges, the latest step away from its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers since President Trump withdrew from the accord over a year ago. The development is significant as the centrifuges previously spun empty, without gas injection, under the landmark 2015 nuclear accord. It also increases pressure on European nations that remain in the accord, which at this point has all but collapsed.
DML: Time to turn up the sanctions, again!
5-United States begins process of withdrawing from Paris climate deal
The United States submitted a formal notification that it will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday, a move that has been widely expected since President Trump announced his intention to do so in 2017. The climate agreement, which went into force Nov. 4, 2016, committed countries that signed the measure to take certain voluntary steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
DML: The Obama legacy struck down again! Way to go Trump!
Social media posts? Banned. Video clips from “The Godfather: Part II?” Banned. Transcripts from “The Godfather: Part II?” Not banned. Those are just some of the unusual ground rules set out by Obama-appointed U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson for the widely anticipated trial of former Trump confidant Roger Stone, which begins on Tuesday in Washington. Stone, a longtime Republican provocateur and part-time fashion critic, is accused of lying about his efforts to obtain Russian-hacked Hillary Clinton emails for political gain. His indictment in January was an offshoot of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, and Judge Jackson ruled that Stone’s legal team would have access to most of the redacted materials in Mueller’s report in order to prepare his defense.
